Beavis and Butt-Head Do U. is a point-and-click adventure game developed by the Illusions Gaming Company and published by GT Interactive Software. The game, based on the American television series Beavis and Butt-Head, was released on 7 March 1999.


GameSpot explains the plot:

For their second full-blown adventure game, the dimwitted duo heads out with the class on a field trip to Highland State College. At first they're not too revved on the idea, but when they remember that college is home to "college sluts" and "beer," they're out of the classroom door and onto the Highland State campus faster than you can say "Fire! Fire!" Once there, Mr. Van Driessen tells them they've got to get the signatures of eight staff members to prove they spent the day learning about the benefits of a Highland State education - and if they do, they'll be rewarded by being allowed to attend a party at the end of the day.[1]

Critical reception[edit]

IGN gave the game a "Mediocre" rating of 5.6.[2]  GameSpot rated the game 5.4, writing,

Beavis and Butt-head Do U. feels like a game that was rushed out at about the halfway point in the development process - a suspicion that grew stronger after the game's weak finale. Casual Beavis and Butt-head fans might be satisfied with hearing their favorite cartoon characters say the same old stuff in a brand-new place, but discerning fans - and gamers looking for their money's worth in an adventure game - will likely walk away from this one feeling a little bit cheated.[1]

Adventure Gamers gave the game 1.5 stars, criticising its "Short game play with mostly elementary puzzles", and concluding: "Only for fans of the series, other gamers will find it heavy handed and superficial."[3]
